Monkeys found but mystery deepens at Dallas Zoo

DALLAS (AP) – Two monkeys from the Dallas Zoo were found in a nearby abandoned house Tuesday after mysteriously missing a day earlier, police said. No arrests have been made.

Dallas police said they found two emperor tamarin monkeys after receiving a tip. Police said they then went to Lancaster’s vacant home just south of Dallas and found the monkeys secured in a closet.

The monkeys have been returned to the zoo.

On Monday, the monkeys were found missing and their enclosure was cut. It was the latest in a string of strange incidents at the zoo including another downed fence, the escape of a small leopard and the suspicious death of an endangered vulture.

Police said Tuesday they are still working to determine whether the incidents over the past few weeks are related.
